WHO TO PRAY TO?
I am someone who prays but doesn’t always “believe”.
I’ve come to the conclusion to trust my own experience rather than try to force follow belief.
Strange maybe, but I have had so many people share a similar dilemma with me that I decided to share my up and down spiritual journey with prayer.
In fact, I’m writing a book with my kind of prayers in it and my joy and struggles and embarrassment about it. It’s called I PRAY ANYWAY–Devotions for the Ambivalent.
I have had the best conversations with people when I mention it. (That will be book number 2.)
So I mentioned the project to one of my sons who looked at me like I was Cro-Magnum Woman. Kind of exasperated I asked, “So don’t you pray at all?”
And he said, “All of the time. I just don’t worry about who I’m praying to.”
We’ll come back to that. I found it liberating.
